Do you struggle to find places for your small, miscellaneous essentials, like power cords, rolls of film, headphones, wrenches, or spare bike parts? We do, which is why we love Magpul’s DAKA, an organizational pouch that gives home to our sundries and helps us control the chaos of day-to-day life.
Magpul is a motorcycle-friendly company from Austin, Texas; its president and VP of R&D are the founders of Ronin Motor Works, which produced 47 examples of the flat-faced, Buell-based bike we all know and love. While Magpul is best known for producing firearms accessories, its DAKA pouch is part of the company’s lesser known line of consumer-focused accessories designed for function, simplicity, and durability. The DAKA pouches are “designed to bring organization to the dusty, dirty, and muddy world we work and play in.”
Made in the USA, the seam-welded, polymer-infused textile pouch has a water-resistant zipper and paracord pull, which means it’ll stand up to most anything you throw at it, short of submersing it under water; we’ve ridden through rainstorms with the DAKA in our backpack, and it protected our valuables, no problem. And since they’re water resistant, cleaning only requires a quick wipe down.
Magpul offers four pouch sizes, from small to extra-large, and each size is available in at least four colors. We like the different colorways because it makes it easy to quickly identify what’s in each of our different pouches; if you prefer a monochromatic life, Magpul embosses a “word matrix” onto its pouches so you can easily write on them with a paint pen.
Good product design always wins our heart and a spot in our kit, which is why we use Magpul’s DAKA pouches every day.
